The Great American Rock Band


In your opinion, who personifies the image in your mind as "the great American rock band"?

In the modern era, I think I have to with Wilco.

You answered your question with a modern era band, but you didn't ask for modern era so CCR would be my choice

If we're not talking modern era then ABB is the obvious choice

Actual the grateful dead may be a better choice

Black Keys without a doubt.

Nothing is more American than the Blues and blues rock

The Beach Boys & The Doors are the 2 greatest American rock bands of all time IMO. If each country in the world had to choose one band to represent their musical history, I'd want it to be one of those 2.

If we are talking all time the Beach Boys or the Doors. Beach Boys really were the only ones posing a threat to the british invasion

Modern era is black keys

CCR lacks the longevity. But I think the defining element of American rock is that it is fiercely independent and does not need industry support. It continues regardless of trends.

In that vein, REM. Maybe the Replacements.

If we're counting the band, then we have to count the Rolling Stones

See that's why I don't like counting the band, you open up a huge can of worms
